The street-art scene in this neighborhood is a delite! (Galleries, too.). Lace up your best walking shoes and grab your camera(s) .... just never know which corner you'll turn and "Wham-POW" -- fun art on the walls. There are some helpful guidePosts on Google, but...More

Come see working class Paris and enjoy some great parks with beautiful vistas of the city. Now full of immigrants, this is historic.

Belleville can come across a bit rough and ready on arrival, but when you get into it you'll be pleasantly surprised. Lots of great bars full of regulars and stundents. Also very cheap for Paris. Get to aux follies for €4 a pint. Also Le...More

So. Belleville was perfect for my trip. Great food. Authentic experience. English speakers everywhere. Safety? Let me put it like this. I counted more than 30 soldiers with assault rifles between my hotel and the stations on Boulevard De Belleville. That doesn't include the Police....More

I booked an AirBNB studio in Belleville (near Jourdain metro stop) and really enjoyed my time here. There is a bus (26) which brings you directly into the area from the Gare du Nord and it's a half hour walk to busy Republique. The streets...More

We visited here to see a famous graffiti/art alley that was listed in our Frommer's guidebook. What we found was a dirty and slightly seedy neighborhood. We stopped in at a bar and were treated rudely. Not worth our time while in Paris.

Here we found the cheapest beer in Paris!!! A bohemic vibe over the whole area, with lots of mixed people from all over the world.

I rented an apartment in Belleville with no other experience of the area other than what I had read here on Trip Advisor. In all honesty, I think Belleville is where Parisians go home to. It's a relatively quiet neighbourhood, served by two Metro stations...More

After a couple of days in Paris visiting the big attractions, we were getting 'crowd weary' so I called on Google to help us find something a bit off the beaten path. We visited Belleville on a Friday. Great choice as it was Market Day!...More

A strange coincidence was the reason to stay in Belleville this time. Trying to learn french through podcasts the e-teacher said that Belleville is really beautiful and definitely worth visiting, since it is her favorite neighborhood in Paris. We booked a Hotel within Belleville and...More

Belleville / Pere Lachaise
At the eastern edge of Paris lies Belleville / Père
Lachaise, an understated wonderland of local
treasures. Alongside the world-famous cemetery,
family-owned delicatessens and cafés nestle between
local stores and establishments. The richness of the
population here has created a little Chinatown of
Asian restaurants, and the area comes to life at night
by a funky underground scene. Façades change from one
